Hmmm! I have a question.

Reacting for reactions sake
Is extremely in poor taste


Are you saying you never react or that the way in which you react is "different"?

When he reacts by laughing it is certainly different. ;-)

More specifically I was thinking of when he's screaming at drivers in the fast lane to move because they're not going fast enough for him! :)

Too funny! That was actually exactly my original thought but I decided not to open that can-o-worms.

Good point.

I suppose that in this context by 'react' I mean a physical, verbal, or emotional assault upon another person.

I am quite animated, aren't I? I do that for my own amusement, and for the amusement of those around me. For example, I've never shot the finger at another driver for all the years I've been on the road, nor have I ever swerved as if to 'hit' or frighten any one with my vehicle. Those things happen to me all the time, and are some of the things I consider poor reactions.

Since the frilly, girly women get more attention from men - I thought I'd giving it a shot! ;)

Why spend all that time and money when you can just throw down a bowl of cold cocktail weenies and get the same results? ;-)

We can't all of us never react to anything. When my boy busted his lip I went through a logical if/then program in my head trying to decide what I needed to do.

I could've thrown my hands above my head and run around in circles screaming.

And of course there are those times where I react immediately and without hesitation and don't even know why. I'm not impervious to my own yearnings for self-control.

But sure, I try not to, "Lash out" at people just because they've offended me.

It's nice to hear you say you're not impervious!
